The study focuses on total protein and total lipids – cholesterol, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL), Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and Triglycerides (TGL) in ten fishes from Kasimodu fish landing centre. The edible tissues; muscle and brain were subjected for investigation. The muscle of Rastrelliger kanagurta and the brain of Arius caelatus found to be rich in protein content. The highest cholesterol value was recorded in muscle of Spyraena obtusata, and in the brain of Arius caelatus. The lowest cholesterol was recorded in the muscle of R. kanagurta and in the brain of Saurida tumbil. The muscle of Nemipterus japonicus and the brain of A. caelatus revealed high HDL and it was low in the muscle of Upeneus sulphureus and in the brain of S. tumbil. More VLDL was observed in the muscle of Sardinella longiceps and in the brain of R. kanagurta and low VLDL was observed in the muscle of N. japonicus and in the brain of S. obtusata. The muscle of A. caelatus and the brain of Pampus niger were rich in LDL and very meagre LDL was observed in muscle of P. niger and in the brain of S. obtusata. The muscle of S. longiceps and the brain of R. kanagurta showed more amount of TGL and the muscle of N. japonicus and the brain of P. niger showed the least amount of TGL. The results emphasize the importance of food value among the fishes of Kasimodu fish landing centre and it alarms the consumer a better awareness about the nutritive value of fishes in selection process of edibility and health concern.
